Dragon Ball Super is in great shape these days, and we have a new movie to thank. If you didn’t know, anime is back in the spotlight thanks to the big-screen adventures of Gohan and Piccolo. Of course, the comeback has sparked calls from fans for a return to television. And if a new report is accurate, Dragon Ball Super may have a small gift in hand.

The little rumor became a big deal on social media as fans learned that a new show might be on the way. In Japan, an innocuous product page for the 2023 TV calendar has drawn attention as fans pay attention to its contributors. Some of the usual suspects like Shueisha and Fuji TV were on the list, but no one expected to see the Dragon Ball Super 2023 production committee listed.

New reports suggest that Dragon Ball Super is planning a return in 2023, but it won’t be the same as before. Dragon Ball sources like Chronicles claim that the 2023 project will be a web anime with episodes lasting under 23 minutes. The series is said to be its own thing rather than a sequel to Dragon Ball Super and will feature an entirely new cast. But if all goes well, an official TV anime will arrive a little later.

At this point, Toei Animation has yet to say anything about these rumors, and neither has the previous Dragon Ball Super production teams. After all, all eyes are still on the anime’s latest theatrical film. But later this year, fans may have some long-awaited news about the return of Dragon Ball Super…even if it’s not what they expected.
